  • Description
    Though surveys are typical in negotiating issues related to real estate, property title, and insurance coverage, many attorneys do not know the basic ins-and-outs of surveys and their requirements. This CLE course will present a comprehensive explanation of the legal requirements for surveys both in residential and commercial properties as well as the title requirements and title reports for which surveys are a critical factor. The course will review regulations under the TIRSA Owner and Loan Policy Covered Risk Section 2(c) and review survey readings, adverse possession and certification.
